Parking in San Francisco is enough of a headache already. Holiday parking? Pass the Aspirin, please. Inspired by public outcry on social media networks for solutions to holiday parking woes, APC has decided to step in and help. This article will guide you through this chaotic time of year and get you through the holidays without having to spend the New Year disputing parking tickets or dealing with impound lots. Long term parking in cities like San Francisco can be done quickly, easily, and without breaking the bank.
It’s crunch time for holiday travel. Millions of Americans across the country will be flying to hundreds of airports, spanning thousands of miles – all in the matter of a few months. It’s a stressful time for everyone involved, and often times people are so focused on their flights being in order that they forget what they’re going to do with their cars.
In major metropolitan areas like San Francisco, thousands of apartment owners aren’t blessed with the luxury of a reserved parking spot. The parking meter enforcers in San Francisco work on most holidays, and even in cities where Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day are free, all of the days surrounding the holidays are fair game. With holiday travels often spending a week or more out of the cities the live in, street parking is simply not an option.
So what do you with your car when you’re flying back east to see the family?
We couldn’t help but notice how many times this question gets asked when we’re on Quora or Twitter, so let’s discuss a couple options:
Many people’s first thought runs to Craigslist.org. Craigslist is a massive online community that allows you to post classified ads, completely free, for just about anything - from job postings to selling old furniture. Many people rent parking spaces and chances are you’ll find a couple options in your respective neighborhood. However, you do run a bit of a risk when dealing with this free service. As much as we believe that people are inherently friendly and good natured, you don’t know exactly who you’re dealing with. Finding long term parking with Craigslist runs the risk of being overcharged for a spot that has no security and no real guarantee that the spot will be available for you in the first place. With no receipt, order confirmation, or security – is it really worth it?
There’s a lot of things that can go awry and cast a dark cloud over your happy holiday, and we would certainly hate for it to be a mishap related to parking. We believe using airport parking facilities is the best way to counteract these potential problems. Airport parking lots provide long term parking in a secure area, away from the street and often monitored through the day and night. Reservations can booked online for discounted rates, and just like the flights – the earlier you book, the better.
Your holiday experience should be enjoyable and stress free. You work too hard throughout the year to have your time off tainted by a ticket, tow, or under-the-table parking spot fiasco. Treat yourself to a stress free holiday by booking a long term parking reservation online and saving time and hassle at the airport.
A quick search yields pricing options that are just as good, or even better than anything you’d find on Craigslist. Look here: San Francisco Airport Parking.
